Perodua cars are well-known in Malaysia for their affordability and reliability. The brand, also known as Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua, is one of the largest automakers in Malaysia. In its early days, this Malaysian brand was mostly known for producing mini hatchbacks. Today, it has established itself as a popular brand in Malaysia with the iconic Perodua Myvi dominating the roads.
Perodua manufactures its cars at its plant in Rawang, Malaysia.
J.D Power 2017 Malaysia Initial Quality Study named Perodua as one of the top brands that ranked well for reliability and quality. The Perodua Myvi and Perodua Axia were also ranked as one of the best cars in the compact segment in 2017.
All Perodua cars come with a five-year or 150,000-kilometer warranty. However, the warranty coverage excludes naturally expendable and maintenance service parts. After the warranty period, the repair for a Perodua can roughly range between RM50 and RM500, depending on the model, as well as the severity of the repair. In general, Perodua cars are affordable to maintain.
*Estimates are based on service repairs without major engine or gearbox overhauls.
The road tax for a Perodua depends on the engine displacement in cubic centimeters (cc). For a Perodua Axia 1.0 (998cc) the road tax costs RM200, while for a Perodua Bezza 1.3 (1300cc), it is RM70. Meanwhile, the road tax for a Perodua Myvi 1.5 (1496cc) costs RM90.
Perodua cars generally have one of the slowest depreciation rates in Malaysia. In fact, the Myvi is known as a car that retains a high value even after five years. The estimated depreciation rate of a Perodua Myvi 1.5L AV is 20 percent after the first or second year, while it can hike up to 40 percent once it reaches the fourth or fifth year. This varies based on factors such as the car’s condition and mileage.
Insurance rate is calculated based on the market price of your car, coverage type, location, engine capacity and your No Claims Discount (NCD). A Perodua Myvi 1.5 AV (1496cc) in Peninsula Malaysia without a NCD will cost roughly RM1,293.47* yearly, compared to a new model at RM1,649.62*.

The Eco Idle system, or the start-stop system, refers to when the engine momentarily shuts off when the car is idle to reduce petrol consumption. When the car comes to a halt, the engine will stop the spark plug operation and fuel delivery, which stops combustion. It will restart once again when the driver lifts their foot off the brakes. This system is available in Perodua Myvi and Perodua Bezza.
Perodua Bezza is the most fuel-efficient car produced by Perodua with an estimated fuel consumption of 4.3 l/100 km.
